  1. Xbox is turning off my monitor when attempting to play new, downloaded games


    This has only happened on the last two games I downloaded, Ghost Recon Wildlands and Forza 4.

    When I click on the game to play either of them, after a few seconds of the first images showing my tv monitor just switches off. I turn it back on and I can briefly see the game is playing it’s into for a second of so before it again turns off.

    All other disk and previously downloaded games are fine.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Many thanks.

    Monitor Flickering

    [quote user="PegasusStrike"]I've since purchased an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and my monitor stopped having the "flickering" issues when I turned my light or fan off when it's connected to my computer. When I use my Xbox, I plug it into my UPS,
    but the monitor still goes dark for 2-3 seconds when I turn my light off or my fan off.[/quote]Is your monitor plugged into a battery-backed UPS outlet or a surge suppressed UPS outlet? Is your UPS showing voltage fluctuations when you turn on/off the light
    and fan?

    If the monitor is not on a battery-backed UPS outlet, try that first. You should also install whatever monitoring software your UPS came with and see what it's showing when you turn on/off the light and fan.

    Connecting to an HDMI computer monitor w/ built-in speakers?

    Yeah that's right. New monitors go on standby when whatever is plugged in is switched off and the monitor can't find anything to display. So when you turn on your 360 your monitor will fire up too - you won't even have to touch it. =)

    Xbox One S: Sleep mode question

    Hey Diego,

    Thanks for your response. Here are the answers to your questions:

    When you turn off your Xbox, are you turning off your monitor too or putting it in a Sleep mode?

    Ans: Normally, to avoid the annoyance, I have to manually turn off the monitor. The monitor is supposed to go to sleep mode when inactive (without the need to turn off separately), but it would keep coming back on when the Xbox One S is turned off.



    Do you have your Xbox plugged into a surge protector or power strip that is shared with your monitor?


    Ans: Yes, everything is connected to a power strip.

    Have you tested a night where your Xbox is not plugged into the monitor to see if the issue is re-created but with the Xbox unplugged?

    Ans: Last night, I removed the HDMI input to the monitor from Xbox One S. This time, the monitor went to sleep after a while. So, it seems the problem indeed is with the console.

    Warm regards,

    Can't download - what's up?

    I have (in the last 24 hours):

    attempted download many times (made it to 33% once, only to stop again)

    deleted each attempt from storage to start over,

    deleted my profile, deleted the download attempt file, cleared cache on all 3 storage devices, turned the console off, hardwired it to the modem; then re-downloaded my profile and attempted the game download again - only to stop at 2%.

    I am just about finished with it all.... Microsoft / Xbox - give me my GAME that I PAID for... or give me my MONEY back!
